Event Registration
Thursday, June 21, 2012
11:00 AM to 12:00 PM - Central Time

Learning to maximize business or social networking interactions is an essential professional skill. With just a few simple rules and techniques, anyone can become a networking pro in no time! Think of it:  Networking skills can increase library visibility, professional credibility, and collaboration across your library, your larger institution, and your greater community.  Participants will learn the ‘dos and don’ts’ of interacting effectively, and will gain the skills and confidence to navigate any networking opportunity.

Participants will learn:

• Pre-planning techniques for networking events
• Best practices for professional interactions
• Networking pitfalls to avoid
• Effective follow-up etiquette

Carol A. Watson is the director and Wendy Moore is the acquisitions librarian at the University of Georgia Law Library.  Wendy and Carol have presented at several AALL and SEAALL meetings on various topics ranging from meeting facilitation to pecha kucha presentations.  They developed their expertise in professional networking to overcome their self-diagnosed awkwardness at social events.

Note: If you are not an AALL member, you will need to create a profile before registering for the webinar.
